ATTOM™ Data Solutions recently issued its Vacant Property and Zombie Foreclosure Report for the second quarter of 2021, which analyzes public data (such as foreclosure status, equity, and owner-occupancy status) and matches it with monthly vacancy data.
According to the company’s report, just over 1.4 million residential properties are currently vacant this quarter, which represents 1.4% of all homes in the U.S. The number of empty pre-foreclosure zombie homes is up both quarterly by 21% and annually by 5.6%, with 33 states experiencing increases.
The report also provided the top 5 states with the most zombie foreclosures, which includes New York, Ohio, Florida, Illinois, and Pennsylvania (in that order), and shows where the biggest increases are occurring within the country.
